I have a confession to make. I have now been quilting for 14 years and I just finished my first quilt with applique on it. I've never appliqued anything, seriously. It was always just a little too intimidating for me. And now that I've done it, it still is.
I tried needle turn applique on this quilt and I wasn't overly happy with the results. I now believe that needle turn applique is something that you practice over and over again before you're actually good at it. If you're a newbie to applique like I am, these videos helped me out tremendously. I couldn't have done it with out Jenny and Jan's help!
"On the Pantry Shelves" - 2013
I have another applique project on my project shelf where I'm going to try machine applique to see if I can tackle that with better results.
This quilt top will be shipping off to my friend Christa- all the way over in Tennessee- so that she can work her magic on it. Christa is an exceptional quilter and I know that she'll do a wonderful job here.
When it's back and I've bound it, I'll share the final masterpiece!
